This was really interesting with lots of interesting facts and explains what happened in New Zealands worst mining disaster. We spent an easy hour even though it was a freezing day. Very beautiful scenery.
A really good historical site with full details of the mining past. Awesome bridge across the river and a detailed account of the mining disaster of 1896. Well preserved remnants of a past which opened up the area.
